Remember film? Back in the olden days, I was a wedding photographer when there were no easy-to-use digital cameras. The challenges were completely different, and few people dared to be photographers. We typically shot between 180-200 images at an entire 9 hour wedding. We had to plan ahead, to think carefully and to know before we even clicked the shutter exactly what the end result would be. Things were so different then
Those years of experience shooting weddings launched me into what I hope is a lifelong career in portraiture. From the very beginning I’ve been blessed. I’ve had incredible opportunities to create innumerable portraits of people all over the world.
And, I get to do what I love most. My passion is for families: especially families with grandparents, little children and everyone in between.
I also love the equestrian world that has welcomed me so graciously. I’m experiencing an intensely creative time of doing individual portraits. Some of these are young children and “soon-to-be adult” young men and women. I’m collaborating with April in painted portraiture.
It may be time for you to update your portrait. Heather Hawkins and her family came back last year and we created this gorgeous portrait. Wouldn’t it be fun for you to have something equally interesting – and beautiful – made this year? I hope to hear from you soon.
